The excitement, the volume, the rush of live music — it feels closer now than it has since the first months of 2020.

Venues all across the country — and central Pennsylvania — have inched closer to opening their doors as vaccination rates have steadily increased. With the recent announcement by Gov. Tom Wolf that COVID-19 mitigation orders will be lifted on Memorial Day (other than mask-wearing), it’s possible that local venues might soon resemble their respective pre-pandemic heydays.

Below is a listing of all currently announced concerts — music, comedy and more — in Lancaster, Harrisburg and Hershey. Many shows have been rescheduled several times, so if you’ve previously purchased a ticket, check with the venue prior to visiting.
